    Aunt Paula's Note:

    The surprise is a chocolate egg baked inside the cupcake! Yum! These cupcakes are so pretty, especially when you ice them with pastel colors for Easter or Spring. I got this from an old Woman's World magazine.

      These were so fun to make with my 7 year old! He did all of it himself and I iced them. I thought these were really good...just didn't care for the wafer texture at the bottom, but I ate around it easy enough...I will keep this recipe and make again for sure. UPDATE**** 1 week later and I am still eating on this cupcakes...still delicious, vanilla wafer softened up and can't tell a difference from the cake at this point. LOVE THEM!

      I made these for Easter and they were very good. I used this recipe because it was fast and easy to make, and for that it gets 5 stars. Next time, if I have more time to spare, I would make a cake from scratch and put the chocolate inside. I loved finding that treat in the middle! Thanks for a great and quick recipe, Aunt Paula!

      I made these for Easter and thought they would go over better then they did. Only four of them got eaten. I did use white cake and didn't add the wafer. I made pink, green and yellow icing and they looked great. I ate one after we got home and I thought they were OK.
